Sarya was born and raised on Venegar. As a young women, she became obsessed with attaining power, influence, wealth, and immortality. Through a stroke of luck, Sarya stumbled into a cave that held the Emerald Eye of Ekron. The Eye was attracted by her strong emotions and the two formed a bond with each other. As Emerald Empress, she conquered her planet and several in its solar system. After installing a dictatorship, she was quickly met with rebellion. Empress fled Venegar and spent years as a pirate.
Empress was soon resigned to her original goals, and formed the Fatal Five to conquer the United Planets. They were defeated by the Legion of Superheroes and sent to Takron-Galtos to serve their sentences. The Fatal Five soon escaped and arrived on Earth to exact revenge. They were defeated when the Legion recruited Superman. The Five later resurfaced in a plot to assassinate President Winema but one participant of the 343rd Intergalactic Games, Jo Nah, defeated Emerald Empress.
With the threat of the Sun Eater on the rise, the Legion convinced the imprisoned Emerald Empress to agree to a temporary alliance. Empress had every intention of double crossing them, something that the Legion took into account. Shrinking Violet snuck into the Emerald Eye of Ekron and sabotaged it. She and the rest of the group were returned to Takron-Galtos. They were later freed by Imperiex and wrecked havoc on the Legion of Superheroes at their Earth headquarters. In the battle, Matter Eater Lad bit a chunk off of the Eye and left Empress powerless. She was imprisoned to serve her sentence.
